Does anyone know of any manufacturer that makes a 1/24 or 1/25th scale of a Jeep Cherokee? I found a Grand Cherokee by Tamiya but would like a "regular" Cherokee. Thanks guys

I have one of the early versions of JGC, but it is a die-cast in 1/24 and the quality of it is really poor... I think it was manufactured by Bburago, but I'd have to check.

But I guess you want some good ol' plastic, huh? :D

Sorry Jon...no XJ Cherokee made in either scale :P

There was a 1/20 RC one made years ago, extremely HTF today. There are a few 1/10 scale RC bodies made today...

I'm scratch building a Cherokee XJ (84-96) in 1/24. The body is almost done, need some putty, primer and should be ready to go. :wub: When I can I will take a pic of it.

You also can find XJ in those scale, some are pretty rare. 1/55, 1/64, 1/43, 1/30 1/28, 1/20, 1/12 and 1/10... At least those is what I found/have in my collection.

This is in 1/20, it was a 84-96 XJ, but I converted into a 97-01 model and RC. On the hood of my 1/1 XJ.

Thanks for the replies. Guess its either the Grand Cherokee or scratch built. I saw the 1/20th scale on ebay, I might be able to swing that one. Once, again thanks guys.

If I recall, much of the Grand's dirty parts were similar to the regular Cherokee, and making the boxy Cherokee body probably wouldn't be too tough- I'd have a rough time converting the Grand dash to a standard Cherokee! Yeah, I think the kit makers missed the boat when they ignored this truck, and the Comanche pickup!

Check out Resin Motor Replicas, he lists both a jeep and a jeep cherokee for the 70's and 80's. Hope this helps, His castings are pretty nice too!:D :) ;)

The one he's got looks like the midsize, '84 style. I wish they'd kitted the older FSJ Cherokee too, now that I think of it!
